Light-up Bookmark

Hi, crafty friends!

This is June(Jooyeon).

It’s getting hotter. So I think it’s time to go on a summer vacation. But since it’s a difficult time because of COVID19, I’m going to spend my vacation eating delicious food and reading books in a cozy and comfortable my house. At that time I might need a bookmark like this.

I made bookmarks for Chibitronics monthly project. Of course, I used LED stickers to turn on the light on.

In this video tutorial, I will show you how to make the bookmark and mechanism about how to turn on the LED’s.

Below is the list of the supplies required I used for the bookmark.


1. Die Cutting

To make this bookmark, we only need the nine pieces of die cutter among the sets above.
The Diameter of the small circle die cutter is 12mm, which exactly matches the diameter of a battery I used.
You can use a card stock of moderate thickness for other pieces, but make sure to use a thick board of 1mm thickness for two pieces of white scalloped circle and one piece of white bar.

2. Stamping

  • Lawn Fawn MAGIC MESSAGES Clear Stamps
  • Lawn Fawn YOU’RE JUST MY TYPE Clear Stamps
You can’t see it in the picture, but I stamped a sentiment on the back of the bookmark to make it pretty.

3. Circuit Composing

After cut out in the shape of the bar which is a battery holder from scalloped circle board, I composed the circuit using the following mechanism.

4. Assembling

By assembling the circuit board and the front panel according to my video tutorial, You can make pretty bookmark with bird and flowers. Then you can read a book even if it’s dark.

I hope you spend this summer time cool and happy, as well as this light-up bookmark.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
